India Vs Pakistan Head to Head
128 matches; India 52; Pakistan 72; no result 4
India vs Pakistan is a dream Final, the last time when these 2 team met in ICC Event Final was in ICC T-20 world cup. In a memorable final, India defeated Pakistan to win the first ever T-20 world cup. The match went down to wire and the result was possible only in the final over.
India holds a definite edge over Pakistan when it comes to ICC events. The batting line up looks in form, they got three players in top run scorer of the tournament. They defeated Pakistan in the league match on June 4th, 2017. However, bowling seems to be a major issue. They yet to find a fifth bowler who can bowl 10 overs. Hardik Pandya is leaking runs over the place, Kedar Jhadav did well in the Semi-Finals. But you can’t expect too much from him in big pressure match.

Pakistan didn’t get a good start to their Champions Trophy campaign. They got comprehensively beaten by Indian in the opening match. But the team took off from there, they defeated might South African and then went on to beat Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka the team which defeated India in the league stage. Then in Semi Final, they did the unthinkable when they defeated home team England. Nobody gave Pakistan a chance against England who was looking unstoppable.
Bowling is the Pakistani strength, they contained England in Semifinal and defended a below par score against Sri Lankans.
It is excepted to be another nail biter, the one which can take the breath away. Cricketing fans will be glued to their Tv screens. Indian are the favorite but Pakistani has already made a strong comeback by beating mighty England they sent a strong message across. Get ready for an ultimate thrill ride on June 18, 2017.
